Comment 1 Robert P. J. Day 2002-12-27 11:12:51 EST
  Just FYI, this option corresponds to "Parallel port support",
"Support for PCMCIA management for PC-style ports".

  currently, since i've already done a "make mrproper" and a build,
that config option shows up *twice* in that menu, the first one
greyed out.  definitely not a good sign.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
